There was much to celebrate at Rookwood School today thanks to 2018’s exceptional GCSE results.
With 97% of students gaining five or more 9-4 grades (equivalent to the old A*-C) and an outstanding 100% of students achieving 9-4 in both Maths and English Language.
Among the many successes were Travis Carpenter, Giacomo Casula and Emily Lewis who gained 8 or more A*/A grades or 9-7 grades. William McDade gained an A* Distinction in Further Mathematics, ranking amongst the top 5% of students who took Further Maths in the country.
Rookwood School has a well-deserved reputation for its nurturing and supportive atmosphere – an approach that has led to continued academic success for this non-selective school.
Headmaster, Mr Kirk-Burgess, commented: ‘I am really proud of all of our Year 11 students. They have worked incredibly hard and truly deserve their fantastic results. This year group, in particular, have had to face the new, tougher GCSE exams and their results are a credit, not only to the positive work ethic of the students, but also to the dedication and hard work of their teachers.
“I would like to wish our students every success as they move on to new challenges. They leave Rookwood as confident, resilient and principled young adults and I have no doubt they will continue to grow and flourish.”
